I saw an Arena Football game (the one and only year there were Memphis Pharoahs) a few years back. Pretty fun... Arena Football really does a good job of catering to the casual fan base as well as the more serious. It's a good mix, and their heads are in the right places.
Sick that I'm going to do this, but I will probably tape the game, just to see what NBC does with the coverage.
NBC is actually regionalizing coverage; IIRC, Florida and some of the Midwest (WI, IL, IN) are getting the game... about 10%.
I know it's year one, but the set is ehh.
Is Dickie going to actually FoxBox the score for once? Sure, the EX-FL did it, but at least Vince had a stake in that. I'm hoping NBC does the right thing and goes ahead with the FoxBox -- especially with the scores that the AFL can get.

I have always wanted to go to one. I go to abotu 2 panthers games a year and they cant be much worse than that. In a related yet off topic thought. I have thought about going to a NBDL game in Fayett-Nam. i think those games may be fun bc those guys are hungry and looking to impress.
If someone gets urinated upon do they get pissed off or pissed on?
My wife and I both watched his "retirement" speech with equal parts amusement and horror on Monday evening. It was one of those things I would have expected Bill Simmons to do a running diary of due to the bizarrness of it.
